Miles of Ice Collapsing Into the Sea – The New York Times

“A rapid disintegration of Antarctica might, in the worst case, cause the sea to rise so fast that tens of millions of coastal refugees would have to flee inland, potentially straining societies to the breaking point.

—Tillis, Justin. “Miles of Ice Collapsing Into The Sea.” The New York Times. May 18, 2017.
